Sonartec NP99 - 3 wood reshaft


leftysviewuk

Recommended Posts

Tip 335 or 350
I've been toying with the idea of reshafting my Sonartec NP99 3 wood with a heavier shaft.
From reading many of the informative threads here I've decided on a Graphite Design purple ice.

Questions I need clarifying before ordering the new shaft are:

1) Does the NP99 require a 350 or a 335 tip shaft ?
2) Will this shaft need tipping, and if so how much for a 3 wood ?

Comments & feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

I play the NP99 in both 17 and 21 degrees. I consider the entire Aldila NV line of shafts to be the biggest pile of expensive junk ever created! I have tried to like these shafts in drivers and fairways, with regular and stiff shafts in 65, 75 and 85! Zero feel for me.

 

As for the NP99, it has a 0.335 tip, and I can heartily recommend the grafalloy prolaunch 75 in this club. It works really well. If you are looking for a slightly lower trajectory, try the new Grafalloy Prototype NT 85. Also a great shaft.

 

p.s. My favourites have always been the Fuji Speeders, but I cant justify the costs....such is life i guess..

Thanks for the info, much appreciated, shaft is now on order, I've seen that many the purple ice is a poular choice for a fariway wood, just now need to know if this requires tipping for installation in a fairway wood. Anybosy fitted this shaft recently ??

Thanks

Golfworks list a trim code of W2 which is 1/2" for a three wood but, also gives the following note:

 

Graphite Design: Wood shaft trimming is listed for thru-bore heads, trim an

additional 1/2" from the amount listed in the chart for blind bore heads and an

additional 1" from the amount listed in the chart for standard bore heads.

Thanks for the input, in that case I need to check, is the NP99

 

Standard Bore or

Blind Bore ?

 

Any takers

Thanks
